DaVinci Roofscapes Becomes Sponsor of Homes for Our Troops
To launch its 10-year anniversary in 2009, DaVinci Roofscapes® has signed on as a corporate sponsor of the non-profit organization, Homes for Our Troops. Under the agreement, DaVinci will supply roofing materials for several project homes that Homes for Our Troops will construct for severely injured service people returning from service in Iraq and Afghanistan.
“We’re pleased to commemorate a decade of innovation and excellence at our company in 2009 and I can’t think of a better way to mark our anniversary than to give back to the deserving men and women who serve our country,” says Ray Rosewall, president and CEO of DaVinci Roofscapes. “We’re honored to share our company’s success by supplying roofing tiles for some of the homes that will be created by this noteworthy organization in 2009.”
Homes for Our Troops has constructed or remodeled more than 35 homes nationwide since the non-profit organization began in 2004. Each home is built at no cost to the injured serviceperson and is constructed with donated products, land manpower. Homes for Our Troops has been recognized by the American Institute of Philanthropy for their excellence as one of only five “Top-Rated Veterans and Military Charities” in the organization’s listings.
“Thousands of servicemen and women are injured overseas each year,” says John Gonsalves, president and founder of Homes for Our Troops. “We are committed to helping the brave men and women who serve and sacrifice to protect us. The addition of DaVinci Roofscapes as a corporate sponsor means that we’ll be able to provide exceptional, top-quality synthetic slate and shake roofs for project homes in 2009. A safe, secure roof over their heads means so much to our returning service people after what they’ve gone through. We’re grateful that DaVinci’s team is helping make this happen.”
